"I wrote this book for you." Diana Lynn
By the time you get to those words in this book, you have walked with Diana through some fairly difficult, I would even go as far as to say traumatizing, events in her life. The way Diana writes, you can feel what she felt; the pain, the joy, the hate, the love.
In the end, though, she did write this book to me, the reader. A compilation of written snapshots of her life, Diana walks through her trials again to share hope with her readers.
Diana's life has encompassed the span of deep depressions....a teenage pregnancy, abusive 1st husband, single motherhood, the loss a relationship with her father, death of her mother, an emotional affair, verbal abuse, loss of a friend......but in this book - the important parts of this book - are the lessons learned, the value of love, the hope everlasting and her ongoing journey with her Lord.
I love Diana's writing style. You can easily read, or reread this book in a short sitting or flip right to the section that fits your situation. The lessons that were hard learned by Diana are offered up with the wisdom that only comes from someone who has survived, thrived, through her difficulties.
Although I don't share many of Diana's life experiences, I feel that I do share some of her pain and I see how she was able to reconcile those parts of her life and that gives me hope also.
Towards the end, Diana focuses on goals and dreams and we see her main objective in writing this book. Diana has written so that we can see how she overcame insurmountable odds and thrived. In the last section she encourages her readers to do the same.
This book is available from Amazon for $9.99. You can learn more about Diana's ministry at Recovering Dysfunctionals and at her blog.
***I do not condone the use of psychics. I also believe the Bible's warnings against a homosexual lifestyle. That doesn't mean that we can't minister and love those who have been to psychics or take part in that lifestyle. Guard against sin, show God's love to the sinner :)
